Many of these nutrients have been studied with respect supporting eye health and preventing vision decline. Nutrition has gained tremendous respect thanks to the ability of these key nutrients to support long-term eye health. Interestingly, over time, our food system has become flooded with processed foods devoid of nutrients, and our produce has become less nutrient dense thanks to commercial farming practices. While food was once enough for healthy eyes and vision, it is now more difficult to achieve eye health while aging without attention to these key nutrients. Conditions like gluten sensitivity and celiac that can cause malabsorption even further exacerbate the need for attention to nutrition and supplementation in order to support long-term eye health and vision.

One study enrolled 3,640 patients with AMD and declining visual acuity to administer high-dose vitamins C and E, beta carotene, and zinc supplements. Comparison with the placebo group demonstrated a statistically significant odds reduction for the development of advanced AMD by supplementing with the antioxidants plus zinc. The study followed these patients for up to nine years.

Another study evaluated the effect of multivitamin supplements and vitamin E on patients at risk of nuclear opacification. In regular users of multivitamin supplements, the risk of nuclear opacification was reduced by one third. In regular users of vitamin E supplements and persons with higher plasma levels of vitamin E, the risk was reduced by approximately half.

Another large, randomized study found that women taking B vitamins (including folate and vitamin B12) reduced their risk of early macular degeneration by more than a third after seven years.
